The Wrist Stand Repositions the Hand to Restrict Nerve Compression

It's quite surprising how few accessories have cropped up that are designed to tackle the problem of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The Wrist Stand stands nearly on its own, offering a much-needed solution to regular computer users with sore joints.

Ibrahim Guvendikler came up with the idea to manufacture an independent prop for your wrist that would support a gentle curvature between your hand and your arm. To accomplish this, a piece of plastic was molded into a arc with a slight depression along the central axis. This keeps your forearm sitting snugly in place. Friction-free edges enable you to move your computer mouse across your desktop and the Wrist Stand will slide to and fro with you. Gaps in the material allow your skin to breathe so that sweat doesn't cause you to stick to the ergonomic accessory.
